'''Nine-Tails Chakra Mode'''<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 538, page 1</ref> is a heightened [[Jinchūriki Forms|transformation]] unique to those with the [[Nine-Tails]]' chakra sealed into them. [[Naruto Uzumaki]], as the Nine-Tails' [[jinchūriki]], is able to enter the form using the beast's [[Yang]] chakra. [[Minato Namikaze]], having sealed the beast's [[Yin]] chakra into his body immediately before his death, has been able to access the form once [[Summoning: Impure World Reincarnation|reincarnated]].

While the mode is active, Naruto gains a chakra shroud with six [[Wikipedia:Magatama|magatama]] around his neck and two distinctive pieces of hair-like horns resembling the [[Sage of the Six Paths]]' silhouette along with a swirl design that resembles the [[Uzumaki clan]]'s symbol. The colour of his eyes changes from blue to orange when he is in this form and while the demon fox shroud is red and releases chakra as acidic bubbles, this form's shroud is yellow and releases chakra as flickering flames.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 499, pages 12-15</ref><ref name="c505">''Naruto'' chapter 505</ref> After forming a friendship with Kurama, Naruto later gains the additional seals that appear on his hands while in Tailed Beast Mode.<ref name="ch628">''Naruto'' chapter 628</ref> While in this form Naruto's chakra signature and smell are different as noted by [[Neji]] and [[Kiba]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 559, page 4</ref>

While this mode is active, the user gains a chakra shroud with six [[magatama]] markings around their neck, two distinctive horns resembling the [[Sage of the Six Paths]]' silhouette, swirl designs similar to the [[Uzumaki clan]]'s symbol, and various other lines extending along their body. Minato's shroud had six additional magatama markings around the collar of his mantle as well as patterns extending from his sleeves to the palms of his hands, the latter of which can also appear on Naruto's shroud at times.<ref name="ch628">Chapter 628</ref>
   
When used by Minato, it holds resemblance to something in between both of Naruto's similar forms; while predominately looking like Naruto's, Minato's shroud also does have the additional seals that are similar to the ones on Naruto's hands and feet, and additional magatama design that appears on his collar while in Tailed Beast Mode. The bangs at the sides of Minato's face go upwards in this mode as well.<ref name="ch631">''Naruto'' chapter 631</ref> There are subtle differences between their designs of the seals spread over their cloaks.
+
The user's eyes become orange when in this mode and whereas the [[Version 1|demon fox cloak]] is red and releases chakra as boiling bubbles, this form's shroud is yellow and releases chakra as flickering flames.<ref>Chapter 499, pages 12-15</ref><ref name="c505">Chapter 505</ref> While in this form, Naruto's chakra signature and smell are different, as noted by [[Neji Hyūga]] and [[Kiba Inuzuka]] respectively.<ref>Chapter 559, page 4</ref> In the anime, a slight dark aura is seen covering Minato's chakra cloak.<ref>''Naruto: Shippūden'' episode 374</ref>

Two years later, with both halves of Kurama now sealed as a whole inside him, Naruto's appearance in this form changed again. His chakra mode's markings now has a more simplistic design with thicker lines, two of which wrap around his collar above the six magatama. His centre also has a single dot with a partial circle around it opening at the top and six lines stretching out from it; two of which spread down his legs and the other two wrapping around his waist that connect behind him next to a circle on the centre of his back.<ref name="TheLast">''The Last: Naruto the Movie''</ref>
As with all jinchūriki transformations, the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode gives the user increased strength, speed, and defences. Nine-Tails Chakra Mode's increases are noticeably superior: Naruto becomes strong enough to push a fully formed [[Tailed Beast Ball]] through a [[Thirty-Six Layer Self-Repairing Barrier|multiple layered barrier]] with just one arm,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 536, pages 8-11</ref> neutralise [[White Zetsu]] with a single kick despite their durability,<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 545, page 11</ref> and, in collaboration with B in his [[Tailed Beast Mode|full Eight-Tails form]], he could also knock down Tobi's [[Demonic Statue of the Outer Path]] with an uppercut.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 592, page 7</ref> Naruto's speed is so great in this form that [[Killer B]] even had trouble determining if he had used the [[Body Flicker Technique]] when attacking [[Kisame]],<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 505, page 12</ref> he could even surpass the speed of a [[Lightning Release Armour|fully charged]] [[A]],<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 544, page 11-12</ref> as well as blitz the extremely fast Third Raikage before the shinobi had any chance to react.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 554, page 4</ref> Naruto's durability is also very high in this form that he was able to endure [[Lava Release Armour|extreme heat]] with only a slight burn.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 565, pages 11-12</ref>
 
   
Naruto is able to use [[chakra arms]] while in Nine-Tails Chakra Mode. Like other jinchūriki he can use the arms to improve his dexterity and manoeuvrability, granting him increased means of interacting with his environment and his opponents. More unique to Naruto, he uses the arms as substitutes for [[shadow clone]]s in his creation of various [[Rasengan]]-variants. Instead of needing a shadow clone to help him with [[shape transformation]], he can do both with just one hand, either his own or the hands of his chakra arms.<ref name="c567">''Naruto'' chapter 567</ref> He still needs more than one hand for the [[nature transformation]] of the [[Rasenshuriken]], but this also is accomplished without shadow clones. Once the Rasengan-variants are formed, Naruto can then use the chakra arms to deliver them across long distances or, in the case of Rasenshuriken, guide them to their target.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 554, page 1</ref> Initially, Naruto tried to create a technique related to the Tailed Beast Ball: the [[Tailed Beast Rasengan]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 520, pages 1-5</ref> However, he later develops a more effective version of this technique: the [[Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball]], which is basically a miniature Tailed Beast Ball that he's able to control with the help of a shadow clone.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 595, pages 4-6</ref>

While in this form, the user can also create [[chakra arms]] and use them to improve their dexterity and manoeuvreability, granting increased means of interacting with their environment and opponents. Naruto used the arms as substitutes for [[shadow clone]]s in his creation of many [[Rasengan]]-variants. He can use his own hand in conjunction with a chakra arm to accomplish the [[shape transformation]] of the Rasengan,<ref>Chapter 567, page 13</ref> and multiple chakra arms to accomplish the shape and [[nature transformation]] of the [[Rasenshuriken]], which he can throw while in this mode.<ref>Chapter 551, pages 13-15</ref> Once the Rasengan-variants are formed, Naruto can then use the chakra arms to deliver them across long distances or, in the case of Rasenshuriken, guide them to their target.<ref>Chapter 554, page 1</ref> Initially, Naruto tried to create a technique related to the Tailed Beast Ball: the [[Tailed Beast Rasengan]].<ref>Chapter 520, pages 1-5</ref> However, he later developed a more effective version of this technique: the [[Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball]], a miniature Tailed Beast Ball that he is able to control with the help of a shadow clone.<ref>Chapter 595, pages 4-6</ref>
Using Nine-Tails Chakra Mode was initially a risk as Naruto had to temporarily "shelve" his own chakra in order to use Kurama's, which allowed the fox to automatically drain Naruto's. If Kurama managed to take all of Naruto's chakra, Naruto would die. Shadow clones provided an additional risk, as Kurama would absorb every portion of Naruto's chakra even faster for each clone he made. Moreover, Naruto also had to be careful about the amount of time he spent in this mode as there was a limit to how much chakra Naruto managed to pull away from Kurama.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 519, pages 10-11</ref> Despite these risks, once involving himself in the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], Naruto deployed several shadow clones while he was in this mode and even managed to remain in the form for an entire night. The [[Eight-Tails]] says this is because at some point Kurama had purposely stopped taking Naruto's chakra.<ref name="c567"/> After Naruto forms a friendship with Kurama these handicaps no longer apply.

Using Nine-Tails Chakra Mode was initially a risk as Naruto had to temporarily "shelve" his own chakra in order to access the chakra he removed from Kurama, during which time it could drain Naruto's own chakra. If Kurama managed to take all of Naruto's chakra, Naruto would die. Shadow clones provided an additional risk, as Kurama would absorb every portion of Naruto's chakra even faster for each clone he made. Moreover, Naruto also had to be careful about the amount of time he spent in this mode as there was a limit to how much chakra he managed to pull away from Kurama.<ref>Chapter 519, pages 10-11</ref> Despite these risks, once involving himself in the [[Fourth Shinobi World War]], Naruto deployed several shadow clones while he was in this mode and even managed to remain in the form for an entire night. [[Gyūki]] attributed this to the fact that Kurama had purposely stopped taking Naruto's chakra.<ref>Chapter 567, page 18</ref> After Naruto forms a friendship with Kurama, these handicaps no longer apply.
  +
  +
Two years after the Fourth Shinobi World War, with Kurama whole again and inside Naruto, the jinchūriki became capable of [[Chakra Enhanced Strength|partitioning]] all of the power of his transformation into a single part of his body, where it was able to withstand and break through a [[Golden Wheel Reincarnation Explosion|powerful beam of chakra]], seen while fighting against [[Toneri Ōtsutsuki]].

[[File:Naruto TailedBeast Mode.png|thumb|left|Naruto's shroud in Kurama Mode.]]
All jinchūriki can enter [[Tailed Beast Mode]], which grants them all the strength and abilities of their corresponding tailed beast. But where other jinchūriki become full-scale replicas of their tailed beast, Naruto (initially) enters a form very visually similar to his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode. The shroud parts down the middle and opens up into a full-length cloak (haori), revealing a black undergarment with three [[Wikipedia:Magatama|magatama]] on each side of his high collar. His seal's numerous swirl-patterns, which were located all over his body, open out into complete, dark, circles. His eyes become red and slitted and his whisker-markings become much thicker, as they do in his early transformations.
+
Realising its own respect for Naruto after all he had endured in his life and the type of person he has become, Kurama decided to accept his friendship. With this new unity, Kurama freely gives Naruto its chakra. By synchronising his heart with Kurama's, Naruto is able to enter the complete version of Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, referred to as {{translation|'''Kurama Mode'''|九喇嘛モード|Kurama Mōdo}}.<ref name="d4">Fourth Databook, page 250</ref><ref>Chapter 570, page 10-15</ref><ref>Chapter 642, page 5</ref><ref>Chapter 660, page 1</ref> In this form, Naruto's shroud parts down the middle and opens up into a full-length haori, revealing a black undergarment with three magatama on each side of his high collar. The shroud's numerous swirl patterns become complete, black circles, and the whisker-like markings on his face become thicker. In Kurama Mode, Naruto has access to the most powerful secret abilities of a jinchūriki, including the [[Tailed Beast Ball]] and [[Tailed Beast Mode|Tailed Beast Transformation]].<ref name="d4"/> Minato is also able to undergo Tailed Beast Transformation, though his chakra cloak does not enter a new form when he does so.<ref>Chapter 645, pages 6-9</ref> Similarly, after both halves of Kurama are sealed inside him, Naruto no longer enters a second form when manifesting Kurama.<ref name="TheLast"/>
   
Naruto's speed and strength are once more increased in this form, to the point that he was able to deflect five [[Tailed Beast Ball]]s by simply moving past them.<ref name="ch571"/> His ability to create different Rasengan without the use of shadow clones remains. Additionally, he can transfer the Nine-Tails's chakra to others, granting them [[version 1]] chakra shrouds that, among other advantages, dramatically improve the strength of their [[techniques]]; [[Kakashi Hatake]] estimated that his [[Kamui]] was at least three times more powerful than usual.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 617, pages 3-4</ref> Naruto can remotely control each individual shroud, such as forming tails for his allies to deflect incoming projectiles.<ref name="ch628"/> Despite the Nine-Tails' contributions, the chakra produced more closely resembles Naruto's than just Kurama's as noted by [[C]].<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 616, page 6</ref>

[[File:Naruto's Partial Transformation.png|thumb|right|Naruto's partial transformation in Kurama Mode.]]
  +
Naruto's speed and strength are once more increased in this form, to the point where he was able to deflect five Tailed Beast Balls by simply moving past them at high speed.<ref name="ch571"/> He was strong enough in this mode to take on five tailed beasts at the same time and later fight against the [[Wood Release: Wood Dragon]] technique. He was also fast enough to move across a battlefield in the blink of an eye just in time to rescue both [[Might Guy]] and [[Kakashi Hatake]].<ref>Chapter 608, page 12</ref> Additionally, he can [[Chakra Transfer Technique|transfer]] Kurama's chakra to others, granting them tailless [[Version 1]]-like chakra shrouds that greatly increase the power of their techniques: [[Hinata Hyūga]], for example, was able to deflect one of the [[Ten-Tails]]' tails to the opposite side of the battlefield with a single [[Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm]].<ref>Chapter 616, pages 10-11</ref> Kakashi estimated the transfer to be even greater than when Kurama directly transferred chakra to him, which has improved his [[Kamui]] at least three-fold.<ref>Chapter 617, pages 3-4</ref> Naruto can remotely control each individual shroud, such as expanding their size or forming tails for his allies to deflect incoming projectiles.<ref name="ch628"/> Despite Kurama's contributions, the chakra produced more closely resembles Naruto's than the fox's as noted by [[C]].<ref>Chapter 616, page 6</ref>

[[File:Naruto and Minato TBM.png|thumb|left|Naruto and Minato in Tailed Beast Mode, with the former using Sage Mode as well.]]
Naruto is able to become a full-scale replica of Kurama, but he is not "in the flesh" so to speak. Rather, the modified Nine-Tails Chakra Mode enlarges into a tailed beast-cloak that recreates Kurama's overall form, while retaining the exact same seal that was previously present on Naruto's body. As opposed to the normal nature of the chakra, it no longer burns those who touch it. It is also translucent, as Naruto can be seen inside the replica's head for the duration of the transformation.<ref name="ch571">''Naruto'' chapter 571</ref> Appearance aside, Naruto gains the usual advantages of Tailed Beast Mode, notably the ability to perform [[Tailed Beast Ball]]s. He can even use the tails of this form as arms to interact with other large targets. Uniquely to Naruto, he can still perform his usual techniques while in this form, such as making shadow clones.
+
Like other jinchūriki, Naruto and Minato are able to form full-scale replicas of their tailed beast. However, instead of the flesh-and-blood constructs the other jinchūriki become, their Tailed Beast Mode is more chakra-based. Their shroud's chakra enlarges into a translucent recreation of Kurama's overall form Naruto's being the same colour as his shroud and Minato's being a darker shade of yellow and the markings on their backs trail off into a pattern resembling a skeletal structure.<ref name="ch571">Chapter 571</ref><ref name="ch645">Chapter 645, page 7</ref> Both jinchūriki's eyes become slitted when entering this form,<ref>Chapter 645, page 1</ref><ref>Chapter 645, page 6</ref> and Kurama is able to control and speak through the construct without taking over its jinchūriki's body.<ref>Chapter 610, page 8</ref> As opposed to the normal nature of the chakra, it no longer burns those who touch it, which enables others to enter the construct's body when allowed by the jinchūriki, where they can be healed and reinvigorated by the chakra.<ref>Chapter 610, page 8</ref><ref>Chapter 649, page 7-8</ref>
   
Naruto cannot maintain Tailed Beast Mode indefinitely because he and Kurama have not yet formed a perfect bond. They are improving: at first they could only last for five minutes,<ref name="ch571"/> but by the time of the [[Ten-Tails]]' revival they extend it to eight minutes.<ref>''Naruto'' chapter 611, page 6</ref>
+
Appearance aside, both jinchūriki gain the usual advantages of Tailed Beast Mode, such as the ability to create [[Tailed Beast Shockwave|powerful shockwaves]] and [[Tailed Beast Ball]]s. A single tail in this form was able to completely overpower and pin down [[Madara Uchiha]]'s [[senjutsu]]-enhanced [[Susanoo]].<ref>Chapter 658, page 11</ref> As demonstrated by Naruto, it is possible to transform the tails of this form into chakra arms to interact with other large targets. The jinchūriki can still perform their regular techniques in Tailed Beast Mode, such as the [[Shadow Clone Technique]],<ref>Chapter 572</ref> as well as the [[Rasengan]] on a [[Parent and Child Rasengan|much larger scale]].<ref>Chapter 645, page 7</ref> Naruto is also able to perform [[Jinchūriki Forms#Partial Transformation|partial transformations]] in Kurama Mode, forming only the fox's head, arms or tails as needed.<ref>Chapter 598, pages 1-2, 6</ref><ref>Chapter 600, pages 14-16</ref>

Naruto initially couldn't maintain Tailed Beast Mode indefinitely because he and Kurama had not yet formed a perfect bond. At first they could only last for five minutes,<ref name="ch571"/> but by the time of the [[Ten-Tails]]' revival, they extended the time to eight minutes.<ref>Chapter 611, page 6</ref> He later maintained his Tailed Beast Mode for an unspecified time limit during his subsequent transformations. In his final battle with [[Toneri Ōtsutsuki]], Naruto demonstrated the ability to manifest Kurama outside of his body, allowing the two to fight independently.<ref name="TheLast"/>

[[File:TBM combines with SM.png|thumb|right|Naruto's combination of Kurama Mode and Sage Mode.]]

Naruto's Nine-Tails Chakra Mode and its various forms can be combined with [[Sage Mode]] to greatly enhance his abilities with the power of [[senjutsu]] chakra, granting him a further increase in speed, strength, durability, [[ninjutsu]] and [[taijutsu]].<ref>Chapter 645, page 8</ref> In this state, Naruto was able to create a [[Tailed Beast Ball#Senjutsu Influence|senjutsu-enhanced Tailed Beast Ball]],<ref>Chapter 645, page 10</ref> as well as add senjutsu chakra to Minato's Rasengan.<ref>Chapter 645, page 8</ref> The eye markings of Sage Mode also reflect on the manifestation of Kurama, and as Naruto noted, he is able to absorb [[natural energy]] more quickly than usual while in Kurama Mode.<ref>Chapter 645, pages 6-7</ref>

[[File:Rikudō Sennin Mōdo.png|thumb|left|Naruto's chakra cloak in Six Paths Sage Mode.]]
  +
With the [[Six Paths Chakra|power]] given to him by [[Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki]], Naruto is able to enter a form known as [[Six Paths Sage Mode]], in which is he able to don another chakra cloak. Like his original Kurama Mode cloak, the chakra forms into a light-coloured coat with a dark-coloured bodysuit underneath. Unlike his usual senjutsu-enhanced chakra shrouds, there is no orange pigmentation around his eyes, his eyes are yellow as opposed to orange, and his skin does not glow like the rest of his body.<ref>[[Naruto and the Sage of the Six Paths…!! (volume)|Volume 70]] cover</ref> The "bodysuit" covers his torso, reaches down his arms to the knuckles, and down his legs, stopping just above his sandals. There is a light-coloured circle where his seal was placed as well as a pattern of six magatama around his collar. On the back of his cloak is the usual marking of the [[Six Paths Senjutsu]], composed of the [[Rinnegan]] above nine magatama. In this state, Naruto is able to levitate and manifest nine [[Truth-Seeking Ball]]s.<ref>Chapter 673, pages 14-17</ref><ref>Chapter 680, page 12</ref>

[[File:Naruto's_Battle_Avatar.png|thumb|Naruto's conjoint Tailed Beast Mode with three heads and six arms.]]

Naruto retains the ability to manifest Kurama's senjutsu-enhanced Tailed Beast Mode chakra replica,<ref name="c695">Chapter 695, page 5</ref> whose might rivals [[Sasuke Uchiha]]'s [[Complete Body — Susanoo]], being able to deflect its sword slashes with a single tail and clash with it fist to fist.<ref>Chapter 695</ref> Through the use of shadow clones, Naruto has shown the ability to combine three Kurama avatars into a single construct with three heads and six arms, which greatly resembles his ancestor [[Asura Ōtsutsuki]]'s chakra avatar.<ref>Chapter 670, page 17</ref><ref>Chapter 696, page 15</ref>

Users

The Nine-Tails Chakra Mode is a heightened transformation unique to jinchūriki of the Nine-Tails.

Appearance Edit

While this mode is active, the user gains a chakra shroud with six magatama markings around their neck, two distinctive horns resembling the Sage of the Six Paths' silhouette, swirl designs similar to the Uzumaki clan's symbol, and various other lines extending along their body. Minato's shroud had six additional magatama markings around the collar of his mantle as well as patterns extending from his sleeves to the palms of his hands, the latter of which can also appear on Naruto's shroud at times.[3]

The user's eyes become orange when in this mode and whereas the demon fox cloak is red and releases chakra as boiling bubbles, this form's shroud is yellow and releases chakra as flickering flames.[4][5] While in this form, Naruto's chakra signature and smell are different, as noted by Neji Hyūga and Kiba Inuzuka respectively.[6] In the anime, a slight dark aura is seen covering Minato's chakra cloak.[7]

Two years later, with both halves of Kurama now sealed as a whole inside him, Naruto's appearance in this form changed again. His chakra mode's markings now has a more simplistic design with thicker lines, two of which wrap around his collar above the six magatama. His centre also has a single dot with a partial circle around it opening at the top and six lines stretching out from it; two of which spread down his legs and the other two wrapping around his waist that connect behind him next to a circle on the centre of his back.[8]

Attributes Edit

As with all jinchūriki transformations, the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode gives the user increased strength, speed, and defences. The Nine-Tails Chakra Mode's increases are noticeably superior: Naruto becomes strong enough to push a fully formed Tailed Beast Ball through a multiple layered barrier with just one arm,[9] neutralise White Zetsu with a single kick despite their durability,[10] and, in collaboration with Killer B in his full Eight-Tails form, knock down the Demonic Statue of the Outer Path with an uppercut.[11] Naruto's speed is so great in this form that B had trouble determining if he had used the Body Flicker Technique when attacking Kisame Hoshigaki.[12] He could even surpass the speed of the fully charged Fourth Raikage,[13] as well as blitz the Third Raikage before the latter could react.[14] Naruto's durability is also very high in this form, as he could withstand extreme heat and steam-powered physical attacks with only minor injuries.[15][16] He could also endure several physical attacks from Version 2 jinchūriki without taking much damage,[17] and even the Ten-Tails' Tenpenchii with only minor physical wounds and the loss of his shroud.[18]

While in this form, the user can also create chakra arms and use them to improve their dexterity and manoeuvreability, granting increased means of interacting with their environment and opponents. Naruto used the arms as substitutes for shadow clones in his creation of many Rasengan-variants. He can use his own hand in conjunction with a chakra arm to accomplish the shape transformation of the Rasengan,[19] and multiple chakra arms to accomplish the shape and nature transformation of the Rasenshuriken, which he can throw while in this mode.[20] Once the Rasengan-variants are formed, Naruto can then use the chakra arms to deliver them across long distances or, in the case of Rasenshuriken, guide them to their target.[21] Initially, Naruto tried to create a technique related to the Tailed Beast Ball: the Tailed Beast Rasengan.[22] However, he later developed a more effective version of this technique: the Super Mini-Tailed Beast Ball, a miniature Tailed Beast Ball that he is able to control with the help of a shadow clone.[23]

Like his predecessor, Mito Uzumaki, Naruto gains Kurama's ability to sense negative emotions, something that not even the best sensor type ninja can do.[24] In addition, he is capable of sensing Kurama's chakra signature even while inside a chakra isolation chamber,[25] as well as sensing other chakra signatures across great distances.[26] This form's chakra gives off an immense life force such that Wood Release techniques react to the chakra's life-giving properties and mature into full-grown trees within a matter of seconds, either by contact or close proximity.[5][27]

NTCM Risks

The initial risk of Naruto using his Nine-Tails Chakra Mode.

Using Nine-Tails Chakra Mode was initially a risk as Naruto had to temporarily "shelve" his own chakra in order to access the chakra he removed from Kurama, during which time it could drain Naruto's own chakra. If Kurama managed to take all of Naruto's chakra, Naruto would die. Shadow clones provided an additional risk, as Kurama would absorb every portion of Naruto's chakra even faster for each clone he made. Moreover, Naruto also had to be careful about the amount of time he spent in this mode as there was a limit to how much chakra he managed to pull away from Kurama.[28] Despite these risks, once involving himself in the Fourth Shinobi World War, Naruto deployed several shadow clones while he was in this mode and even managed to remain in the form for an entire night. Gyūki attributed this to the fact that Kurama had purposely stopped taking Naruto's chakra.[29] After Naruto forms a friendship with Kurama, these handicaps no longer apply.

Two years after the Fourth Shinobi World War, with Kurama whole again and inside Naruto, the jinchūriki became capable of partitioning all of the power of his transformation into a single part of his body, where it was able to withstand and break through a powerful beam of chakra, seen while fighting against Toneri Ōtsutsuki.

Tailed Beast Mode Edit

Naruto TailedBeast Mode

Naruto's shroud in Kurama Mode.

Realising its own respect for Naruto after all he had endured in his life and the type of person he has become, Kurama decided to accept his friendship. With this new unity, Kurama freely gives Naruto its chakra. By synchronising his heart with Kurama's, Naruto is able to enter the complete version of Nine-Tails Chakra Mode, referred to as Kurama Mode (九喇嘛モード, Kurama Mōdo).[30][31][32][33] In this form, Naruto's shroud parts down the middle and opens up into a full-length haori, revealing a black undergarment with three magatama on each side of his high collar. The shroud's numerous swirl patterns become complete, black circles, and the whisker-like markings on his face become thicker. In Kurama Mode, Naruto has access to the most powerful secret abilities of a jinchūriki, including the Tailed Beast Ball and Tailed Beast Transformation.[30] Minato is also able to undergo Tailed Beast Transformation, though his chakra cloak does not enter a new form when he does so.[34] Similarly, after both halves of Kurama are sealed inside him, Naruto no longer enters a second form when manifesting Kurama.[8]

Naruto&#039;s Partial Transformation

Naruto's partial transformation in Kurama Mode.

Naruto's speed and strength are once more increased in this form, to the point where he was able to deflect five Tailed Beast Balls by simply moving past them at high speed.[35] He was strong enough in this mode to take on five tailed beasts at the same time and later fight against the Wood Release: Wood Dragon technique. He was also fast enough to move across a battlefield in the blink of an eye just in time to rescue both Might Guy and Kakashi Hatake.[36] Additionally, he can transfer Kurama's chakra to others, granting them tailless Version 1-like chakra shrouds that greatly increase the power of their techniques: Hinata Hyūga, for example, was able to deflect one of the Ten-Tails' tails to the opposite side of the battlefield with a single Eight Trigrams Vacuum Palm.[37] Kakashi estimated the transfer to be even greater than when Kurama directly transferred chakra to him, which has improved his Kamui at least three-fold.[38] Naruto can remotely control each individual shroud, such as expanding their size or forming tails for his allies to deflect incoming projectiles.[3] Despite Kurama's contributions, the chakra produced more closely resembles Naruto's than the fox's as noted by C.[39]

Naruto and Minato TBM

Naruto and Minato in Tailed Beast Mode, with the former using Sage Mode as well.

Like other jinchūriki, Naruto and Minato are able to form full-scale replicas of their tailed beast. However, instead of the flesh-and-blood constructs the other jinchūriki become, their Tailed Beast Mode is more chakra-based. Their shroud's chakra enlarges into a translucent recreation of Kurama's overall form — Naruto's being the same colour as his shroud and Minato's being a darker shade of yellow — and the markings on their backs trail off into a pattern resembling a skeletal structure.[35][40] Both jinchūriki's eyes become slitted when entering this form,[41][42] and Kurama is able to control and speak through the construct without taking over its jinchūriki's body.[43] As opposed to the normal nature of the chakra, it no longer burns those who touch it, which enables others to enter the construct's body when allowed by the jinchūriki, where they can be healed and reinvigorated by the chakra.[44][45]

Appearance aside, both jinchūriki gain the usual advantages of Tailed Beast Mode, such as the ability to create powerful shockwaves and Tailed Beast Balls. A single tail in this form was able to completely overpower and pin down Madara Uchiha's senjutsu-enhanced Susanoo.[46] As demonstrated by Naruto, it is possible to transform the tails of this form into chakra arms to interact with other large targets. The jinchūriki can still perform their regular techniques in Tailed Beast Mode, such as the Shadow Clone Technique,[47] as well as the Rasengan on a much larger scale.[48] Naruto is also able to perform partial transformations in Kurama Mode, forming only the fox's head, arms or tails as needed.[49][50]

Naruto initially couldn't maintain Tailed Beast Mode indefinitely because he and Kurama had not yet formed a perfect bond. At first they could only last for five minutes,[35] but by the time of the Ten-Tails' revival, they extended the time to eight minutes.[51] He later maintained his Tailed Beast Mode for an unspecified time limit during his subsequent transformations. In his final battle with Toneri Ōtsutsuki, Naruto demonstrated the ability to manifest Kurama outside of his body, allowing the two to fight independently.[8]

Tailed Beast Sage Mode Edit

TBM combines with SM

Naruto's combination of Kurama Mode and Sage Mode.

Naruto's Nine-Tails Chakra Mode and its various forms can be combined with Sage Mode to greatly enhance his abilities with the power of senjutsu chakra, granting him a further increase in speed, strength, durability, ninjutsu and taijutsu.[52] In this state, Naruto was able to create a senjutsu-enhanced Tailed Beast Ball,[53] as well as add senjutsu chakra to Minato's Rasengan.[54] The eye markings of Sage Mode also reflect on the manifestation of Kurama, and as Naruto noted, he is able to absorb natural energy more quickly than usual while in Kurama Mode.[55]

Six Paths Sage Mode Edit

Main article: Six Paths Sage Mode

Rikudō Sennin Mōdo

Naruto's chakra cloak in Six Paths Sage Mode.

With the power given to him by Hagoromo Ōtsutsuki, Naruto is able to enter a form known as Six Paths Sage Mode, in which is he able to don another chakra cloak. Like his original Kurama Mode cloak, the chakra forms into a light-coloured coat with a dark-coloured bodysuit underneath. Unlike his usual senjutsu-enhanced chakra shrouds, there is no orange pigmentation around his eyes, his eyes are yellow as opposed to orange, and his skin does not glow like the rest of his body.[56] The "bodysuit" covers his torso, reaches down his arms to the knuckles, and down his legs, stopping just above his sandals. There is a light-coloured circle where his seal was placed as well as a pattern of six magatama around his collar. On the back of his cloak is the usual marking of the Six Paths Senjutsu, composed of the Rinnegan above nine magatama. In this state, Naruto is able to levitate and manifest nine Truth-Seeking Balls.[57][58]

Naruto&#039;s Battle Avatar

Naruto's conjoint Tailed Beast Mode with three heads and six arms.

Naruto retains the ability to manifest Kurama's senjutsu-enhanced Tailed Beast Mode chakra replica,[59] whose might rivals Sasuke Uchiha's Complete Body — Susanoo, being able to deflect its sword slashes with a single tail and clash with it fist to fist.[60] Through the use of shadow clones, Naruto has shown the ability to combine three Kurama avatars into a single construct with three heads and six arms, which greatly resembles his ancestor Asura Ōtsutsuki's chakra avatar.[61][62]

Trivia Edit

  • Upon first observing Naruto's enhanced chakra shroud while in Kurama Mode from behind, Kakashi Hatake momentarily mistook Naruto for Minato.[35]
  • Prior to Naruto entering Kurama Mode for the first time, the markings on his chakra shroud would extend further along his arms and legs whenever he attempted to form the Tailed Beast Rasengan, causing his cloak to briefly progress toward its complete form.[63][64][65]
  • In the Power arc, despite the fact that Naruto had not yet subjugated Kurama's power, motivated by the Tonika Village orphans' plea to save Dokku and Shiseru, Naruto temporarily assumed an incomplete version of the Nine-Tails Chakra Mode after breaking free from Kurama's influence. During his brief time in the form, Naruto was able to form an incomplete Tailed Beast Rasengan as well. He was also able to enter an imperfect version of the Tailed Beast Mode, in which his seal spread over his body, forming unique markings. Much like Tailed Beast Mode, Naruto's chakra manifested into a replica of Kurama, although it lacked legs and possessed only six tails. In addition to the shroud's tails, Naruto was capable of forming chakra arms to bind his opponents while in this state.[66]
  • In Kurama Mode, the facial markings on Naruto's cheeks resemble Bagua trigrams, specifically the ☰ trigram.
  • When Minato first entered this mode, the bangs at the sides of his face spiked upward and his chakra cloak gained horns similar to those of his son. However, he reverted to his origial hairstyle after being kicked by Obito in chapter 639 and it remained that way from chapter 640 onward. This change was replicated in the anime, with Minato's hair changing after being kicked in Naruto: Shippūden episode 378.
  • Unlike Naruto, Minato doesn't have significant changes between the shrouds he dons while in basic Nine-Tails Chakra Mode and Tailed Beast Mode. The swirls don't turn into full circles, there is no new "chakra cloak", and the only changes are the slit pupils.
